The purpose of this paper provides guidance for emergency preparedness for those caring for infants in developed contexts, both emergency management organisations and individuals who care for infants. It provides details on the supplies needed by the caregivers of breastfed and formula fed infants in an emergency where essential services such as electricity and clean water supplies are unavailable and discusses some of the practicalities of caring for infants in emergencies. This paper also provides examples of the sorts of messages that emergency management organisations should provide to those who care for infants prior to an emergency, during an emergency and during the recovery period.
